Ram 2500 vs Chevy Silverado 2500


A lot of power lies between two of the most-recognized trucks in the industry: the 2022 Ram 2500 vs. 2022 Chevy Silverado 2500. Though they may sound similar, drivers are surprised to find that these trucks have major differences in terms of performance, safety, and infotainment.

We at Denton Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram have written up this easy-to-read comparison between the two models. If you’re an interested driver near Denton, Carrollton, and Flower Mound, TX, keep reading to see which truck has the most for your drive. 

Ram 2500 vs Chevy Silverado 2500: Engines

Both models offer their drivers a choice of two different engine options. To introduce their lineups, the Ram 2500 and Chevy Silverado 2500 give their base models a powerful standard engine.

Let’s see how these two compares to one another:

Ram 2500 Engine Specs


2022 Ram 2500

2022 Chevy Silverado 2500


6.4L HEMI® V8

6.6L gas V8





429 lb-ft

464 lb-ft

Max Towing Capacity

17,540 pounds

17,370 pounds

As you can see, both standard engines keep up with one another, though the Ram 2500 does offer slightly higher horsepower and towing capacity. Simply put: If you’re looking for the most out of a standard model, the Ram model is capable of more power.

However, it’s not all about the numbers. To receive a truck that can handle any task, you’ll want a model that comes with its fair share of performance features. For example, the Ram 2500 uses available Bilstein® Gas-Charged Monotube Shocks to tackle any uneven or rough terrain. Once engaged, they provide a smoother ride so you can focus on making your own path.

For even more off-road capability, the Ram Power Wagon model comes with an electronically disconnecting front sway bar. This feature is meant to enhance your axle articulation. Plus, the front and rear locking differentials electronically lock so all four of your wheels receive equal torque.

The Silverado does not offer similar features.

Ram 2500 vs Chevy Silverado 2500: Safety

Safety starts with sight. The Ram 2500 offers an available Adaptive Forward Lighting System to help drivers see every aspect in and around their vehicle. The system comes complete with LED lighting and the following features:

  • 15° turning headlamps: When traveling on dark roads, activate these headlights and you can adjust them up to 15°.
  • 360° Surround View Camera: This camera system comes with Trailer Reverse Guidance View, which provides a view of both sides of your truck and trailer.
  • LED Trailer Hitch Light: Thanks to this integrated light, no matter the time of day, drivers can set up their hitch. The light effectively illuminates your hitching area so you can safely and securely hook your trailer or other attachment.

These features are meant to assist drivers as they ride so their line of vision is clear for the journey ahead. The Chevy Silverado does offer available advanced headlights, however, it does not offer an assistive lighting system such as this.

Ram 2500 vs Chevy Silverado 2500: Connections

Staying connected is no issue in either the Ram 2500 or the Chevy Silverado, however one model tends to lean towards fun luxuries and driver-focused systems.

For example, the Ram 2500 has the available advanced Uconnect® 5C system, which adds more inches to your touchscreen and up to five user profiles, a customizable home screen, and dual-phone connectivity for passenger convenience.

There, you can enjoy interfaces, see navigation, and control your entertainment and media settings.

When you find your perfect road playlist, add the optional 900-watt Harman Kardon® Premium Audio system and surround yourself and your passengers with a 17-world-class speaker system.

The Uconnect® 5C system only shows up as an option for the Ram 2500. Meanwhile, the Chevy Silverado has a connection more focused on towing features and navigation, allowing some of the more leisure features to be left in the dust.
